  1. Maddie Balduf says:

    If I won a million dollars I would buy a nice car buy my daughter grandparents out so they coulld retire and enjoy the rest of their lives along with my sisters I’d pay for their bills. I’d buy some cloth diapers a house int he country and plentiful of land to garden on and raise cows and chicjens that can roam free. Last but not least I go around and get homeless people back on their feet, rehab, small apartment, what they really needed. Oh and I’d take my family ona vacation.

  2. Salena Perkins says:

    I would pay off all my bills, buy a huge stash of cloth diapers, find a cure for lupus for my mom, and buy a home for my family.

  3. robyn g says:

    A million dollars… Build the house of my mothers dreams, and set up a bank account to pay property tax for it for a few years. College funds for my kids. Pay off our house. And diapers. Lots of diapers.

  4. I have no idea what I would buy, but maybe new vehicles. Ours all need a lot of repairs.

  5. Lily Ivey says:

    I would pay off all debt, buy a nicer house, decent vehicles, start college funds for my girls, and retire!

  6. Sarah Jane says:

    A house in the country and chickens.

  7. Amber says:

  8. Breanne says:

  9. megan beaver says:

    A house first.

  10. Hana Boccella says:

    If I had 1 million dollars I would buy a home and a nice suv for my family. I would also put a lot into savings for my two daughters. After I made sure my family wad taken care of I would definitely use some money for a nice vacation one with the family and one for mom and dad only :)

  11. Andrea H says:

    Pay off debt, family vacation, & invest! Oh, & lots of cloth diapers & woven wraps! 😉

  12. casey says:

    a house with lots of land!

  13. Jenny B says:

    As I was doing a diaper change last night, I was just thinking about an organization that my mom’s friend works with – it’s home that helps pregnant teenage girls who are homeless and have family to help them out. I was thinking it’d be useful for them to have a stash of cloth diapers for the girls that live there, to use for their babies. So if I had a million dollars, after I did all of the default stuff (pay off bills/mortgage, vacation for the kids, more diapers, etc), I’d probably take a wad of cash and buy a huge crap load of cloth diapers & wipes and children’s clothing and formula and donate it to the home.

    I’d also get myself an industrial sized freezer and fill it with those Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake ice cream bars, because those things are awesome. I loved being pregnant because I could eat an entire box of them in one sitting and not feel guilty because, hey, cravings.

    • Jenny B says:

      *have NO family to help them out.

      Sorry, typo. I started thinking about those ice cream bars and was too distracted to properly proof-read my comment before posting. :(

  18. Sara says:

    With a milion bucks?! The husband and I have already discussed paying off debt so that I could be a SAHM. We would then get a car seat that rear-faces with a larger weight limit, an ergo, other baby items. We would update all our family’s cell phones, probably get a used car and SUV, then save.

  19. Janice says:

    I would buy a new house and farm closer to where my husband works. I would want a house big enough to host guests and volunteers with his organization.

  20. Lisa H. says:

    I would pay off the house, take a vacation, and start college funds for my daughters.

    Bibles to share Christ. :)

  24. Susan Miller says:

    If I had a million dollars, I would buy a house. I would make sure my baby had the best cloth diaper stash in the world, and that he had everything he could possibly need. I would go back to college and get a better degree, and I would set aside money for him to go to college as well. I would take my little man to Disney World and watch his have a blast. Whatever was left I would split between charities & my savings account for emergencies.

  25. Patricia B says:

    I would pay off my house, my car and my student loans. then I would buy my husband the truck he wants, and then set up bank accounts for my boys so that when they are old enough they will have some money. with what is left I would work things out so my husband and I could live comfortably. hey a girl can dream :)

  28. Andrea Penner says:

    I would move to an acreage and build a nice (but modest) house, buy a new vehicle, travel to Australia, set aside some university funds for our children, and then give the rest to charity. I wouldn’t want our lives to change too much!

  29. Michaele says:

  38. Julie says:

    I would get the heck out of this God-forsaken area, move back to my beloved mountain home and put my husband, myself and my oldest daughter at home through school. I don’t know if it would quite be enough but it would be a nice start.

  39. Stephanie says:

    It’s hard to even comprehend a million dollars. I would first pay off our debt (student loans) and then would support the teen center where my husband and sister-in-law work. There are so many at-risk kids in our city, who just need someone to help them “find their feet”. It would be amazing to see what (almost) a million dollars could to do to support this city!

  40. Laura Jacobson says:

    If I had a million dollars, I would move to a smaller home and buy my sister and her austistic son one right next door to me, and on the other side of me…I would buy my sons family one. My sons family had to move back home with me due to loss of a job…and I am so blessed to see my grandson grow everyday! I would love to have us all close by so we can see each other often and help each other out!

  41. Tyler Reavis says:

    If I had $1mil, I would pay off our debt, buy a whole new wardrobe, go on a really nice vacation, & put the rest into savings. :) I’m sure we’d make a few more big purchases…maybe a new truck.

    A new home and fully fund our retirement funds

  62. Douglas F. says:

    If I had a million dollars I would buy my wife a new wedding ring as her push gift. She lost her ring about a year ago and times have been too tough for us to really replace it. I would then buy a new car for my wife so that I wouldn’t have to worry about driving around in an old one with the baby. I would also pay off all of our loans and debt.

  67. Michelle Lee says:

    I’d buy a home and invest for the future.

  68. Charlee Alexander says:

    If I had a million dollars, I would be a stay at home mom! My mother had to work when I was a child and I wanted more than anything for her to be home everyday when I got home from school. And I would pay for my parents to take a trip, since they are so awesome!

I would help out my family and pay off their debt, as much as I could. Of course I would go on a little shopping spree…get a full stash of cloth diapers so I don’t have to wash every day, get LO some cute new clothes, maybe a few new outfits for myself. LO is still very young and I’d love for him to see the world. We would definitely take trips every summer. I’d like to save most of the money – never know what could happen in today’s economy.

  159. Meaghan Boyer says:

    If I had $1 Million I would pay off my school loans, buy a new car and house, and set money aside for savings.

  160. Amie Blandford says:

    With a million bucks, I’d pay off our house, get a new car, and help out a few of my favorite charities. Then I’d convert some more mamas to cloth diapering so I could set them up with cute fluff(my last is almost out of diapers!)

  161. Kel. says:

    I would buy all the cloth diapers I would ever need. Save lots for college for the kids and retirement!

  162. Kelley H. says:

    If I had a million dollars I would: complete my stash of fluff :) buy a new car, fix up our house, buy a top of the line crazy expensive car seat and lots of other stuff!

  163. Kylie says:

    Pay off our mortgage, buy a really nice mini-van, take the kids to Disney World, and hoard the rest :)

  164. Kimberlie says:

    I’d buy 1 of every print bG 4.0 and Freetime, a House in the Country for post Military retirement, and a new car for hubby.

  165. JenniferLeibstein says:

    a house, and a car. and more cloth diapers!

  166. Katie F says:

    I would buy a house and a car. (We’re currently a one car family and it’s manual, which I can’t drive.)

  167. Jenny McClamroch says:

    A new car, a new house, a new wardrobe!

  168. Nisa says:

    give my 10% at least, pay off my mortgage, invest in my childs future, and give give give. and maybe selfishly i would get a newer van/suv for our fam.

  169. Carrie Dinges says:

    I would buy the house of my dreams a new van and college tuition for my kids

  170. Kristin says:

    If I had a million dollars….I would pay off student loans, buy a house, and tithe 20%.

  171. Rachel Legoute says:

    If I had one million dollars…

    If I had to pick ONE thing that I would buy if I had a million dollars, I think I would have to say a home. I can’t imagine spending that much money on one home, so I’d probably buy a home here in the States and one close to the city where my husband grew up overseas…

    But even that wouldn’t be enough to use up one million dollars…so I would probably think create and endowment or investment fund so that the money made from it could be invested into the charities with which I work, and I could actually be the person giving money to the causes that I love so much, instead of always having to ask others to give to them.

    I’d also probably buy some more of the new elemental diapers. I think I love them.

  172. Tracy says:

    I would pay off my mortgage and my parents mortgage and then give the rest to charity. Oh, and maybe buy some diaper, too :)

  173. Chelsea says:

    I’d buy a new wardrobe, new makeup, and decorations/furnishings for the house we moved into 6 months ago.

  174. Tess says:

    If I had a million dollars the first thing I would do would be to pay off our house so that I could be a stay at home mom.

  175. Sara Swanson says:

    a new house and adopt a child

  176. Amanda says:

    If I had a million dollars, I would donate a good portion of it to some local charities in my local town. I would then pay off my school loans, buy a new car, buy some cloth diapers to add to my supply, and invest some money.

  177. Rebecca says:

    I would start by buying a house (as we having been living in an apartment). Whatever was left would take much prayer to determine the best use for it at the time.

  178. Nichole Smith says:

    If I had a million dollars I would put it towards all six of my children’s college education.

  179. Vicki Hall says:

    I would buy a new house in the country.

  180. Jennifer says:

    If I had a million dollars I would pay off all our debts, buy lots of bumgenius diapers (I would love to have all the colors and prints), and put the rest towards retirement and college funds.

  181. Kristin Ruggieri says:

    If i had a million dollars i would hire a maid! I hate house cleaning. As far as what i would buy… i think we would just pay off our mortgage and other loans. A nice shopping spree where i could hire people who have some fashion sense would be nice too! I have absolutely no idea about what is fashionable!

  182. Lily d says:

    I’d pay off debt and buy a little cottage in the French countryside.

  183. Melissa C. says:

    Sadly, that would almost buy us a 3 bedroom home here in Los Angeles! Hopefully also a nice vacation every year.

  184. Laura Krenik says:

    I would buy a house- not too big, just something with character that I could make really nice.

  185. hayley s says:

    If I had a million dollars, I would buy my dream house!

  186. Tamara Sz says:

    I think I’d give some away first, to further God’s work around the world. Then I’d buy a house (we rent now), and put away the rest for my kiddos and retirement!

  187. Amber says:

    I would pay off my house and buy more cloth diapers for starters of course! Our small stash of 15 freetimes isn’t really enough…

  188. Caitlin C. says:

    If I had a million dollars I would first invest it and then use the interest to pay of debt first, put away for baby’s college fund and FINALLY travel the world.

  189. Jennine G-L says:

    If I had a million dollars I would buy a new house and a new car and help my parents finish getting their house the way they want it.

  190. Erin Ritter says:

    If I had a million dollars I would save a ton of it and I would buy a Toyota Prius!

  191. Brandi M says:

    With a million dollars one could buy anything really but I would go a different route. Being a stay at home mom things are tight most of the time and this makes my husbands role as the money maker hard. To make his life easier I would start my spending by paying off every debt we had then get rid of the junky car he drives to save us money ( while leave a new car behind for me and the kids to keep us safe) and buy him a newer car. Then I would pay someone to finish his household honey to do list so he no longer has to have that over his head. I would live the “greener” lifestyle I have always dreamed of but couldn’t afford, by buying more cloth diapers and making our home more energy efficient. Finally I would donate to others so they may suffer less and live life more fully.

  192. If I had a million dollars (after sharing it with my parents and in-laws), I would purchase a lot more land for our farm. There is nothing better than having room to roam and reflect in privacy. Plus, my husband enjoys farming, so it would be a win-win!

  193. Katie says:

    If I had a million, I’d be a stay-at-home mom:)

  194. Lyss Tayler says:

    If I had a million dollars I would buy the complete BG rainbow including artist prints and the baseball diaper I would also buy hemp inserts for my heavy wetter. And with the rest I would buy a house in Florida and a car. And then save the rest for just in case money

  195. Mary says:

    If I had a million dollars, I’d buy the most beautiful, glorious cloth diaper stash! Or…a house for my family…lol

  196. Kristy Feldhousen-Giles says:

    A nice house!

  197. Cheri Poggensee says:

    I would go on a shopping spree @ CottonBabies

  198. Ally says:

    If I had a million dollars I would build my dream home and buy a new car!!!

  199. Jennifer says:

    i’d pay off all my student loans and buy a piece of property and hand build a tiny home . and one for my mom. oh and lots of cloth diapers and wool… and then use there rest to be a sneaky philanthropist. ive always wanted to do that.

  200. Audrey says:

    With a million dollars, I would would first pay off all our debt (not fun, but necessary). Some would be saved for a college fund for the little one, retirement fund for us, donations to nonprofits, and the rest used to travel to The Galápagos Islands!

  201. Tara F says:

    An early retirement for my husband :)

  202. Nina says:

    First off I would tithe 10% of it and then pay off debt. I would buy a house and pay off both my in laws and parents mortgages. I would give money to my old youth pastor who is now a missionary in brazil who provides water filters to the people on the amazon. We would adopt a child and put money aside for all of our kiddos for school, weddings, and anything else that could come. Would put money in a high interested savings. Yea I have NEVER thought about this….lol!!

  203. Maria says:

    I know, I’m a pessimist, but a million dollars isn’t much after taxes. :-p I’d pay off all of our debt including out mortgage, and look for a house closer to my husband’s job so he could spend more time with us and less time driving!

  204. Heather Ward says:

    I would hire a ull time nanny and go back in the military, then buy a house, and pay off my parents’ and inlaws houses.

  205. Carolyn says:

    I would buy a vacation home

  206. Karina says:

    I’d pay off debt and buy a farm.

  207. gwen lepennec says:

    If I had a million dollars, I’d place it so that my son has no trouble living in his future, no matter what happens to me.

  208. Sarah says:

    If I had a million dollars, I’d probably do something practical like buy some rental property to keep the money churning…and then bless a bunch of people with it!

  209. Hannah says:

    If I had a million dollars…I’d pay off my house, invest some, bank some, start a business, and donate a lot to charity…the main goal being to use the investments and business to make a profit, enabling me to continuously donate to charity and provide for my family.

  210. ashhintze says:

    With a million dollars I’d buy a new house , car, pay off some debts and save for my boys’ college. :-)

  211. Rebecca Annastas says:

    I would invest the majority quickly so I could work out our finances to become a stay at home mom and have another baby.

  212. Becky says:

    I would definitely set aside some for my kids’ college education, maybe buy a few necessities, and give a lot away to help support missions and Compassion International.

  213. Erin D says:

    A house!

  214. Jen B says:

    A college education for all of my children, an amazing home and someone to clean it!

  215. Pamela Palmer says:

    If I had a million dollars, I would buy homes for my family members and warm clothes and food for all of the needy babies!

  216. Brianna C says:

    I would pay off all my debt, buy my husband a hot rod, and pay off my parents’ debt. :)

  217. Holly Steffen says:

    If I had a million dollars, I would build my dream house– a modest, efficient bungalow. I would save some so I could travel the world and help deliver babies in third world countries when all my babies have left the nest.
